MV Lucy wreck in Pembrokeshire

A dive buddy is planning a trip to Pembrokeshire this July with the possibility of diving the MV Lucy.

The Lucy was a 52metre coaster containing a cargo of calcium carbide when she ran aground in ‘Jack Sound’ on Valentines Day in 1967.
The current carried her into the entrance to North Haven where she sank perfectly upright in 40m of water.
Found this great vid on YouTube.

The deep wreck sits in about 40m of water so is on the technical side of single tank diving.
It has been recommended to dive on an enriched mix of 28%-30% to give significantly more time to explore.
Can anyone who has dived it recommend whether it is worth the effort?
